Companies to demo NFC at 3GSM

3GSM will be the setting of the latest large-scale demonstration of Near Field Communication Technology (NFC) — the easy-to-use short range wireless technology. Royal Philips Electronics and Telefonica Moviles Espana, the largest Spanish mobile operator, will demonstrate the simplicity of NFC technology by providing 200 selected attendees of the 3GSM World Congress with NFC-enabled Samsung SGH-X700 mobile phones to be used in a variety of applications throughout the conference and exhibition area. With the NFC-enabled Samsung SGH-X700 mobile phones, the 200 participants can conduct various transactions throughout the Congress, including secure payment and exhibition and conference access, simply with the swipe of their mobile phones. Other applications and services that are part of the demonstration include on-site registration, information exchange with the lead retrieval system, an electronic business card with the user's personal registration dated stored on the phone and the opportunity to win prizes.
